 Advanced ASOS at 2019 Annual Conference

In the continual effort to present affordable airport training programs, the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and the Northeast Chapter AAAE are pleased to present the Advanced Airport Safety and Operations Specialist (ASOS) Schools, to be held at the Annual Conference in Portland, Maine.


Since 1989, ASOS Schools have become a regular and recurring part of virtually every airport's training program for operations personnel. Taught by airport industry professionals, these courses are designed to make the individual aware of Part 139 airport certification program and other safety responsibilities, as well as enhance the professionalism of airport operations personnel. These professional schools are specifically tailored for airport personnel responsible for the day-to-day operations of public-use and shared-use airports throughout the United States.

Advanced ASOS School

The two-day Advanced ASOS School is designed for individuals who either have attended a Basic ASOS School or have at least three years of experience in airport operations. The school uses fewer prepared presentations and more problem-solving workshops, role-playing scenarios and breakout groups, so that all attendees actively can participate in the proceedings. Best management practices and lessons learned by participating airports are encouraged to be discussed during the breakout sessions.

For additional information including an agenda and how to register, visit the ASOS website on AAAE.org.
